Lenovo to build custom Windows Phone 8 handset
WPDang says that Lenovo has sent a number of R&D executives to meet with Microsoft in an attempt to negotiate more freedom for designing the UI of a Lenovo Windows Phone 8 model. For the recently launched Android powered Lenovo LePhone S880, the OEM had spent plenty of time and money on the UI, and a custom app store. With its Windows Phone 8 model, Lenovo would want to keep as much of the customized build as possible. Microsoft might give in with the app store, but allowing Lenovo to go ahead with customizing the UI will be a hard sell for the OEM.

The second sentence of this article is incorrect. While Windows Phones don't support dual-core processors, both the HTC Titan & the HTC Titan II on AT&T have 4.7 inch screens.

Tough luck Lenovo. W.P is not like some other OS where you can just put some crap skin on it. Try differentiating with beautiful phone designs instead please.

You som your a failure in your life. Your living in poverty and your too poor to buy food. Here's $5 and buy yourself a cardboard house to live in for your life. And honestly windows phone 8 is gonna beat iPhone and android in enterprise badly.

Thanks for the heads-up, everyone! The Titan didn't come to mind for some reason.
